How to Check Your Website

Checking your website means, to check if there are any broken links that are causing your website ranking to underperform. When you delete a page or a post or make changes on a URL that has been already indexed by search engines or is already bookmarked by users, this creates a broken link. Hence, leaving them a bad experience with your website.

So here are the reasons why you should regularly check your website for any broken links:

  • By fixing a broken link, you are helping your customers to get them to the page they want to go. Providing a good overall experience.
  • By not having broken links on your website can help your website reputation with search engines. Making your website more desirable.

And our Traffic Booster tool can help you achieve that goal. Here’s how:
